Stumped? Can't find the right words for the essay, the right notes for the score, the right colors for the painting? Don't panic. Let your mind wander. Dream a little. See what your unconscious can do, without your help. Then, get to work. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

This is one of those rare books that blows the mind and then begs to be read over and over again. The premise is unusual -- and perhaps that is why it is so compelling. The author Robert Bly, a founder of the mythopoetic men's movement he helped birth in the 1980's, walks us through the obscure German fairy tale, Iron John, alternating the telling of the tale with a blend of literary scholarship and poetic imagination. What results is a work of deep and timeless wisdom -- an inspiring, bracing antidote to our cynical, materialist, soul-crushing, conformity-obsessed modern world. ~ Reviewed by Sam Baker

A very important read for everyone during the wintering of a year that 2020 has become. Definitely one of the most entrancing self-help books I’ve read in a long while. May’s personal narrative illuminating her hardest and darkest of times was beautifully written, almost in a poetic form. Keep this book close as the winter season approaches; it’ll help shine a dim, healing light through the darkness. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

A beautiful book to remedy what ails us all today. May writes about a period in her life when the only way for her to heal was by wintering,; a drawing in of oneself, taking joy in the simple things, disconnecting from today's technological mania, and tuning back into nature, and the nature of ourselves. In a time when we've all needed to spend wintering, this book is a joy, and a timely one. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
